    Tellafriend got me thinking with his recap of how the T.I. sweated his roulette action, so I want to hear your stories of which casino sweated your action, and what the action was that caused such a concern.

    I have a lot of them, but I'll start with this one.........

    Binions craps -

    so occasionally my host and I will go downtown for a little gambool together since he cannot play on property. A few years ago we were making a quick craps loop through Downtown, and played at GG, the D, Four Queens, Golden Nugget, and finally to Binions. We were playing on the table that is almost on the sidewalk. My usual buy in is $10k for craps, but I was down a little from the previous places, so i think I bought in for $8k or very close to it. I give him $500 to play with. The buy in immediately caused an uproar. Who are you, do you have a card, blah, blah, blah. I blew them off and started playing my usual $100 pass, full odds, place across, etc. Now mind you the table was pretty full as it was I think a $5 table. One young girl who I think had $5 total on the pass line started hitting numbers left and right. I started pressing and they started giving me a bunch of shit. I was totally going to fuck with them and the girl just kept rolling. You could literally see the "sweat" start pouring out of the boxman and now a supervisor who was watching my bets get higher and higher. Since they couldn't rattle me, the crew started chirping, trying to interfere with the dice, getting the stick in the way, anything to stop the roll. They then resorted to trying to convince the girl that she was not rolling the dice far enough and she wasn't hitting the back wall, which of couse was all bullshit. She then had one fairly short roll where the dice stopped right against the back wall and that they paid off. A couple rolls later, she totally hit the back wall, made the point, and they called no roll since they "claimed" that the dice did not hit the back wall and that she had been warned once already. The whole table exploded and were literally screaming bloody murder at the whole crew. It was so bad I couldn't believe that they were trying to pass this off as a no-roll. I was so pissed I immediately called all bets off, and between what I had built up on the place bets and the winning bets already secured I ended up with IIRC was around a quick $6000 win. I vowed never to go back to Binions again. A total sweat joint, when at one time they were known for taking the biggest wagers in town.

    Wow and I thought they liked the big bets since they took Archie Karras' action!

    I like watching the Casino Royale craps suits sweat the money. Get green or black on that table and watch them congregate and act like they're losing thousands.

    One night one of the dealers told a dude in a suit who was having a good time and betting blacks to "go back to the Wynn where you belong".

    Yeah, one time we were fucking with Casino Royale as well by betting pass line minimum and then taking the 100x odds. They weren't happy

    I want to do that. Maybe in a couple weeks.

    I could see them openly cheering if a shooter sevened out with someone playing 100x

    at Cromwell 2 trips ago.

    started with 2k in promo chips and grinded them into 40k.

    at that point the shoe was a perfect chop and I was betting table max 10k.

    some commotion happens and I look away and as I glance back I see the dealer delete the last hand from the screen.

    I'm like wait a minute, what the hell was that, you just deleted the last hand.

    she's like no, I was just something or other.

    I'm like no you just deleted the last hand, what was that?

    she's like no, no. I'm like that's fucked up.

    the problem is I don't remember what the last hand was because it was just chopping and that's all I was thinking about.

    it fucked me up because I really didn't know what happened or which side really won the last hand.

    so I went with the board and bet player and it was a natural bank.

    and then after that it started chopping again for 3 more hands, but I got off it because of the 2 banks.

    after I saw that, I left.

    I'm pretty sure she cost me at least 50k.

    Casino Royale used to have full pay bartops so we used go there when we would be having a rough night see if we could turn it around. This was about 7 years ago and was with a work buddy who was just drinking $1 Michelobs or something like that. Some dude was betting the 100x odds with $5 on the line and hitting numbers. They were literally telling him he wasn't hitting the wall hard enough, IMO from I was watching he was hitting it in the air so...After about his 5th point they are treating him like a complete asshole. He takes all his bets down, except his $5 pass line and throws the fucking dice behind the bar! Tells them to go fuck themselves and walks to the cage. From the cage he got a security escort out. I should add 3 of the points were 4 or 10, so he was getting paid 2 to 1. Never seen a crew or boxman so blatantly try to push a player off the table.

    This past superbowl weekend. I was down around 120k at wynn. A bunch of us went to cosmo and straight to the talon room. I got back 60k in dd bj in about 20 min.

    A buddy of mine who is a regular there told me switch up games (bacc) since they have marked me as an AP.

    Still want to hear this from the host though. Doubt cosmo is a sweat joint but just wanted to share.

    Haha nice.

    When I was new to craps and Vegas and with a smaller roll I played there a lot because it was $5 and good for me to learn and not lose a lot of money. I saw them sweat the guy playing blacks and I've seen them be outright hostile to people and it never clicked why. I didn't understand or think about them sweating losses. But once I started to understand I'd pick up on things especially when they change the stick on just about every throw and bring in fills when not needed. My favorite was when they took the dice out of play mid roll. Made a huge production out of it. Put five new dice in and the shooter takes a shot of whiskey and kind of laughs to himself. Picks up two new ones and nonchalantly chunks them and hits his point of four. And he wasn't even on fire. He hit three points and none of us had anything bigger than reds out there. This was Thanksgiving 2010 if I recall.
